National Child Labor Committee Invites Nominations for Service to Children Awards

"The National Child Labor Committee, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to defending the rights of children in the workplace and fighting for universal education, invites nominations of individuals for the 2009 Lewis Hine Awards for Service to Children and Youth. These nationally recognized awards, now in their 24th year, are presented annually by NCLC to ten recipients five professionals and five volunteers for their unheralded and exceptional service to young people.

The awards seek to identify not the one-time hero, but the individual who has made a commitment to the well-being, growth, and development of youth. That commitment may be carried out in a paid job or through volunteering. Professional nominees must work full-time or part-time and receive pay for the activity or service they are nominated for performing. Volunteer nominees must be unpaid volunteers in relation to the activity or service they are nominated for performing. In either case, the individual's efforts should symbolize the exceptional work done to improve the lives of young people.

Services and programs nominees may be providing include: juvenile crime prevention; pediatric AIDS awareness and support services; rehabilitation programs for incarcerated youth; health care programs; constructive alternatives to gang violence; drug abuse counseling; family mediation and crisis intervention; teen counseling, programs and services for children with disabilities, research, treatment, and prevention of childhood diseases; employment and training programs for at-risk youth; education (teachers may be nominated, but not for regular classroom teaching); quality child care; tutoring and mentoring programs; child abuse prevention and treatment; alternative education programs; awareness programs to prevent child abduction; programs for homeless children; foster parent services; centers for runaway youth; fundraising and board involvement in agencies serving youth; community-based organizations such as Big Brothers/ Big Sisters and 4-H Clubs; and recreational and athletic programs; and child advocacy and lobbying.

NCLC will bring the awardees to New York City for a media-covered ceremony where their outstanding public service will be recognized and each will receive an award of $1,000."
